The Dunedin Musicians come up from the deep south, set up camp (AKA the ‘Silver Beaver Lodge’) and organise an annual ‘themed come all, get together’. 

The idea is for newcomers and old friends alike to meet, share and enjoy a fun evening, catch up on ol’ goss and meet new people.. 

This event  happens on the Saturday late afternoon, prior to the evening concert.

Dress in your themed attire and come along with a plate of nibbles to share and you own drinks.

The invitation has been cast, it is now time to get your thinking robes on, a ‘Ghosts and Ghouls’ theme has been declared and The Silver Beaver Lodge request the manifestation of your appearance at the ‘Ghost and Ghouls’ adult dress-up, drinks and nibbles at the Silver Beaver Lodge 
Haunted Shack.

Saturday 20 April at 6pm

There should be plenty of options of banshee, phantoms and apparitions. 
Frivolity, creativity and good humour assured again this year!!!

Top class fun was had last year with ‘World Leaders’ theme which included an elite guest list including Oprah Winfrey, Winston Churchill, the Obama’s, Indira Ghandi, Kate Sheppard, Muammar Gaddafi and representatives from many international bureaucracy’s.

Be part of a revenant cast, you never know which poltergeist you could 
rub shoulders with!
Please BYO and nibbles to share.
